I got a pair of these sticks about 4 years ago and still have them. I got them when I played a lot more back in high school and they stood up to the abuse pretty well. They do chip and splinter, but you can make these last awhile. They do have a chance of leaving black or red, (depending on what color you get), marks behind as you play. These sticks worked great for me, but I have noticed others having a lot of trouble with them. I would suggest at least trying them out and seeing if you like them.

These are budget quality sticks- NOT just renamed blemished Vic Firths. They have different paint, different tip shape, and most crucially, different taper: the 5B model's is a much shorter & more abrupt taper- making them front heavy compared to Vic Firth 5B sticks. Not bad- but not a deal on real Vic Firths...

      Comments about Vic Firth Nova Hickory Drumsticks:

      I gave my 5 year old nephew a brand new pair of these drum sticks to mess around with. He pounded the concrete sidewalk for half an hour with these drum sticks, and the tips held up. He's a very destructive boy suffering from A.D.H.D., so you get the picture.

                Bought these for myself to practice and my son is a snare player in the school band. Fairly good deal and price for what we will be using them for.

                I got these on a whim. Looking for new sticks, figured I would give them a try. I am very impressed with them. Vic 2nds or not, they seem like they hold up even better. A little shoulder ware, but after six months on the same pair. I couldn't ask for more(other than other sizes). Great, durable, long lasting stick. Takes rim shots like a champ. Out lasted Vic's Classic black.

                    I bought these (the red version) for my four-year old son to play with. At the price, I didn't expect them to last long, but I didn't expect them to break the very first time he used them either. I was very disappointed, but not as disappointed as my son.
